I think the argument boiled down as to how Lincoln resolved that civil war was the answer to the South seceding for whatever reasons. Ron Paul made it very clear on many occasions that Lincoln could have bought the slaves for their freedom....a much less costlier option than a 4 year bloody war if you choose to think that slavery was the issue for the war. I don't think our young people realize the cold hard reality of war else they would never sign up for it...let alone allow themselves to be mercenaries as UN forces.
